I went to Color Knitting Class last night. Just barely got my homework/practice done. Which was just the stranded hearts that I added on to the Mosaic practice piece I did.
And just because I love stranded knitting. And just because I love the look of stranded mittens ... I got this book ... Knitting Marvelous Mittens. Fortunately, I got it at a much better price than what's out there right now. This a very convenient book, so I consider myself to be very lucky to find it at the right price. It also means I better knit some fancy mittens next month for the Knittin' Mittens KAL I'm in. I haven't even done January's yet, but I'll whip something up tonight and post tomorrow. I guess I hadn't done them yet because I'm the one giving the prize this month for the draw and of course I'm not in the drawing.
But I've been knitting the mittens each month to put aside for all the grandchildren for Christmas next year. Getting a head start this time. It's about time that I've smartened up right?
Well at the class last night we learned how to to Intarsia knitting ... I started & finished my practice piece right there. Used the cotton which doesn't have a nice smooth look, but it was only practice. Looks like sherbet flavors doesn't it?
AND The Seed Stitch Fine Yarn had a few bags of yarn still on clearance. Just sitting there. BEGGING to be taken home. Sooooo ....
Look at what I got ... Debbie Bliss Cotton DK for only $1.95 a skein. How could I go wrong? And the color mix will be perfect for something for the Munchkin who's first birthday is in March. Something to wear in the Spring & Summer right?
Something with Intarsia maybe?
